Professional Counseling Offices

When Professional Counseling Offices were first established by a family therapist and a psychologist in the l970’s, it was their inspiration to exchange ideas and share resources so that their clients would have the best support that they could possibly offer.

Today, the practice has grown to 15 private practitioners who provide an array of services and offer a wide range of expertise. Listed on this website are the counselors, psychologists, and attorney who offer their services in the Professional Counseling Offices at 1124 South 5th Street, conveniently located near historic downtown Springfield. To learn more about appointment availability, insurance coverage and areas of expertise, call the offices at 217-744-3525. The dedicated office staff will be pleased to assist you and answer any questions you might have.
